up for medicaid. >> that's 56,000 more americans that have health care, and they didn't count on the website. >> reporter: and that's a good thing. their applications came through the machlt clay johnson is a former member of the obama technology team. >> what we've done is created systems that enable this level of waste. >> reporter: he blames federal rults who went out over and over like cgi which won bids in five didn't states to help develop their websites. that's the same company now under fire for its role as lead contractor for the federal website. >> cgi federal had contracts with five different states, something tells me that they got paid five times for some of the same code. >> now, cgi has had some better luck in some of those states like kentucky which is seen as a model. and other states are well under way, but charlie and norah, it goes back to the money, and why are taxpayers forking over a billion dollars on 15 state websites that are going to end up looking pretty much the same. >> all right. thank you. you saw health and human services secretary kathleen seb
the obamacare train wreck. americans remember a, quote, soothing assurance from president obama in 2009 when he was hawking his affordable care act to the masses. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. now tell that to the hundreds of thousands of americans who already have received letters from health plans essentially telling them you are on your own, end of quote. as the failed rollout of obamacare continues, american families are beginning to see its disastrous impacts, and this is just the beginning. in the coming weeks more reports will reveal their president's signature health care law will increase premium rates, force employers to cut back on workers' hours, destroying jobs, and terminate existing policies for needy families. congress must address this issue. the house has acted. the senate must do the same to protect every american family from an unsustainable disaster. in conclusion, god bless our troops and we'll never forget september 11 and the global war on terrorism. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does
suggest this benefit of the african-american community is drawn in to remarkable relief when one keeps in find in 2004, a state senator in illinois by the name of barack obama cosponsored an expansion of illinois' law providing civil immunity for those who use justifiable force to defend themselves. so the notion that "stand your ground" laws are some form of israelied racism bay be a convenient political attack. it's not bourn out by the fact remotely. i want to secondly note the issue of alec, an organization that exists to encourage common sense legislation and state legislators. i would like to enter to the record multiple letters submitted to me organizations that are concerned about the targeting of it in conjunction with the hearing. when you see the united states senate targeting the exercise of free speech, this observation is not unique to me. indeed on august 8, 2013, the chicago transcribe boone wrote an editorial that stated free speech isn't always free. it gets downright cumbersome when senators have you on the enemies list. and it would be wrong for a u.s. senator to us
the assertion that no one recently could suggest this benefit of the african-american community is drawn into remarkable relief when one keeps in mind that in 2004, a state senator in illinois by the name of barack obama cosponsored an expansion of illinois laws, providing civil and unity for those who use justifiable force to defend themselves. so the notion that stand your ground laws are some form of veiled racism may be a convenient political attack, but it is not borne out by the facts remotely. i want to, secondly, note the issue of alec, an organization that exists to encourage commonsense legislation and state legislatures. .. and it would be around for a u.s. senator to use the power of his high federal office at the cutthroat or against his enemies and i certainly hope this senate hearing does not become an avenue to suppress her speech. a final point i'd like to make. by its definition, stand your ground law does not apply to aggressors. it explicitly excludes aggressors. i would note this mcbath, on that night he lost her son, the defense would not apply, would not even argua
. >>> president obama repeatedly said if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan, period. so why are americans getting letters like this? in order to comply with the new requirements for individual health plans under ppaca, we must eliminate your current blue cross-blue shield plan. we are automatically moving to you a new plan that meets the new requirements. but the person who got this letter hasn't gotten a new plan. in fact, she doesn't have coverage at all. she's fallen into what's being called the obamacare coverage gap. she joins me now. she's a rancher in colorado and with us this morning. thanks for being here, tammy. you get this letter. you've always had insurance. what did this new plan that they were pushing you into offer? >> it offered a much higher deductible and it offered a out of pocket that we didn't have before. so it's causing what we actually pay for our health care coverage to be a lot more expensive even though the premium stayed pretty much the same. >> were you happy with your coverage before this? >> yes, i was extremely happy. we had a

two hours. it goes up tore a test 58 later today, president obama in a blog vote urging congress to pass the measure saying there is prod support for the bill among americans and it should be the law of the land. >>> a 19-year-old man is recovering this morning after quite bizarre scenario. he was froed from 2009 two buildings in new york city. firefighters say a student at nyu was stuck in a space about six to 12 inches wide. he had been stuck there for almost two days. once he was found, it took officials about an hour-and-a-half to break through three layers of cinder block to pull the man free. it is not sure how he got there. he may have fallen out a window into that space. forget snakes on a plane. how about an alligator at an airport. this was an alligator found under an escalator. an employer used a broom and dustpan to capture the reptile. it has been nicknamed aloby employees. it will eventually be placed in other home where the climate might be warmer an conducive. >> i have an alligator, i was using a dustpan, i personified it there. >> is that don corleone? >> i don'
in the obama competent economy. and this is before basically anyone had even heard of this obamacare web site. now that the health care law is actually coming on line, many americans are finding they'll be seeing premium increases or that they'll be getting hit with higher co-pays and deductibles or that they'll no longer see the doctors or use the hospitals of their choice. in fact, i've been hearing from constituents in western kentucky that a number of hospitals and health care providers they've relied upon will no longer be available in their network. and in many cases they'll be responsible for 100% of the costs associated with services performed at those stilts facilities they used to use. let me repeat. 100% of the cost. how is that an improvement? how is that reform? many in the middle class are also learning that the health plans they were promised they could keep are being taken away from them anyway. they feel absolutely betrayed. they feel hurt. and they feel vulnerable. when these folks are offered -- quote -- "comparable plans at all" they're often completely unaffordable. and i
obama has been in office we've added $6.4 trillion to the debt. so the truth is, it is going take two partieses to get us out of the mess. the american people expect us to do work together do it. what are the big challenges we face? i think my colleague senator graham talked about them. one is medicare is going bankrupt in 2026, social security goes bankrupt in 2033. the mandatory spending piece of what we spend our dollars on is two-thirds of federal spending. cbo's long-term outlook in the next 25 years looks worse for our nation. not better. and in fact, those important programs i just talked about mandatory spending, entitlement program. they're going squeeze out the discretion snare priorities we also care about defense fracture and education. if fell madly we don't take on the larger challenges then the people relying open the program we're not doing a service to them. it they are important for our nation. and they are important to i know many of my constituents and others who are relying on them for a secure retirement and future. my home is that we can lay a foundation for a l
the state and utah on the government to put these exchange is up, it is not fair to the american people that the republican states are not going to put the exchanges in, and then when it goes back, the first person they want to lean on as president obama. it is has filed a little bit though because he should have been on top of what is going down on the website. and then everybody would've had a chance to enjoy something that is going to be cheaper, and everybody that is talking about canceling their policies, that is because they are dumped policies. they put these policies out after the lock them out, low price, and then when they go to the hospital, they are out of pocket for over $1000. so sebelius needs to get on her job, too, because everybody is responsible. host: ok. on twitter this morning, radical rights and that the blame goes to democrats in the general. they passed this train wreck. -- different view from bill king on twitter who writes -- who is responsible for the problems and rollout of the aca? the republicans -- 42 attempts to dismantle it and lack of support. comments
, fewer than half of americans thinking it's a bad idea, and this is despite, as you point out, tara, the massive misinformation obfuscation campaign by republicans on this. i mean, they've been running against obama care for three election cycles. >> i have to jump on the electoral cal clus, which is what about the government shutdown? we have totally forgotten about the government shutdown and how the republican party blundered that. where people were out of work for week, billions of dollars were lost. so we're coming -- but the aca has obfuscated this, and this is going to be a real danger for the democratic party if it is not resolved. if we get to november and it's not worked out, come to december. >> americans haven't forgot. if we look at opinions about the republican party, they have declined as a result of that shutdown. they have not come back. in september, it was 44% negative. early october during the shutdown, 53% negative. late october, early novshgs we're still at 53% negative. people don't seem to have forgotten about the shutdown. >> anybody in washington, but let o
mr. obama leaves office. i'd like to see her pursue the story of his life and his wife's life, particularly i'm curious about how this man who was not that prominent in american politics was skyrocketed to the presidency, and even though many of his policies are not popular, he is still beloved by so many of our people. so i'd like to see her do a chronicle of his life after he leaves the presidency explaining his success in politics and perhaps how the hypocrisy in both his family and his father's family and his mother's family may have influenced him. so i'd love to -- >> host: thank you, vicki. kitty kelley? >> guest: well, i hope some publisher was listening to her.

we get any enrollment data from the obama administration and the white house is warning that the numbers will be small. but interesting indicators out today from a new commonwealth fund survey. fewer than one in five americans who could be eligible for coverage under the affordable care act says they actually looked into enrolling at this point. 60% of those polled said they are aware of the marketplace, that's up from a third a few months ago. only slightly more than half are aware of the avail ability of subsidies. nose who have explored obama care, 21% have enrolled. encouraging number as among those who have bought the plans. one in five, younger than 30. while more than half are between 30 and 49. 7 3%, good to excellent health. one in four says that they're in fair to poor health. new health department notes released by a house panel show even as health officials encouraging americans to apply by phone and through navigators the system wide problems were impacting those paper enrollment requests as well. one notation from an october 11th meeting said, quote, the pa

million americans? president obama and democrats in congress promised over and over again that if you liked your insurance you could keep it. and it just wasn't true. "the washington post" fact checker looked into the president's claim. these are the folks that say, truthful, not truthful. they gave him the full four pinocchios, completely false claims. the fact checker wrote, "the president's promise apparently came with a very large caveat: if you like your health care plan, all he be able to keep your health care plan if we" -- meaning the white house -- "if we deem it to be ought." well, the president never said that. if the white house had been honest about people losing their health insurance, this law would never have passed. the law did pass, and people across the country are learning how much it's going to actually hurt them personally. for millions of people who are losing the insurance that they have, they're finding that the options available under the democrats' health care law are much more limited and much more expensive. the rates are higher, the deductibles are higher

, i want to inform my fellow senators and the american people, and inform them again on the excellent progress that we made on nominations and fair treatment of president obama's nominees and confirming the nominees of the president. with these confirmations today, the senate will have confirmed 38 lower court article 3 judicial nominees this year, despite what i frequently hear that this president is being treated differently than president bush, president obama is clearly ahead of where president bush was at a similar time frame, meaning at this time frame in a second term. the 38 confirmations this year is more than two and a half times the number confirmed at a similar stage in president bush's second term when only 14 judicial nominees had been confirmed. in fact, for 0 the entire fifth year of president bush's term only 21 lower court judges were confirmed. again, in president obama's fifth year we will have confirmed 38 nominees after today's vote. in addition to the robust pace of activity on the floor, the committee has had an aggressive schedule of hearings and business meet
hamburgers it was selling every day. yet the obama administration cannot tell us how many americans have tried to sign up for obamacare, can't tell us how many americans did sign up for obamacare, they can't tell us what level of insurance they bought, nor can they tell us in what zip code they live. they've told us that 20 million americans have visited the obamacare web site. they've got the basic information to shop but how many have tried to sign up? how many did sign up? where do they live? what kind of insurance did they buy? not only have they not told us, madam president, they've done their best to keep us from finding out. with wicki leaks and aircraft snow den -- snowden spilling our beans every day, it's the biggest secret left in washington, d.c. the national security administration could learn some lessons from secretary sebelius. see wee shouldn't have to rely on anonymous sources to get basic information about what's happening with obamacare. therefore i'm introducing legislation today to require the administration to answer the following questions every week, how many peo
of other americans are falsely a facing as we spea. meetings hebz, leadership meetings happened, member meetings happened, furious scheming behind the scenes, and a lot of lobbying. and ultimately that lobbying of the obama administration paid off, because in early august of this year, right after congress got out of town for the august recess, conveniently right after congress left the scene of the crime, the obama administration issued a special rule with no basis in the law, in my opinion, no basis in the obamacare statute. and this special rule is a special exemption for congress, a carveout to take all of the financial sting out of that obamacare section. and what this special o.p.m. rule is -- and, again, o.p.m., the office of personnel management, was the agency that came up with this illegal rule after this furious lobbying, after president obama became personally involved, literally personally participated in the discussions leading to this rule -- what this illegal rule does is essentially two things. first of all, the rule says, well, official congressional staff. we don't kn
